Robin - Yarm£51
Trusted teacher: I am possibly the most highly qualified, experienced teacher that you will find (30 years experience). I teach Ph.D., postgraduate university students right down to beginners. Please note that all lessons are online so you can relax in the comfort of your own home. Many of my pupils become professional musicians. I have taught at Conservatoire (Royal Northern College of Music) and have been an examiner for the Royal College of Organists diplomas (I am an academy teacher for the RCO). I have had pupils as young as 15 gain diplomas. I am classically trained with the highest level music qualification (a Ph.D.) and have topped the jazz piano charts too (no. 1 in the UK, no. 33 globally) and so even improvisation can be a topic to study. I also teach singing in all styles classical, pop, and musical theatre with pupils taking exams right through to diploma. I teach lessons on Zoom that are enjoyable and thorough. I am also an expert in the aural (listening) aspect of examinations with some of my research being published by Routledge currently (I am a Kodaly influenced practitioner and able to teach using solfege to a high level). I teach high-level paperwork for those taking diplomas and degrees too. My lessons are engaging and cover a wide range of tasks to ensure fun with a deep understanding. My theory lessons teach through playing so they are much more enjoyable and you learn to understand through what you are doing. Please note that all of my international lessons are online. I am based in the UK but teach across the globe.

Anna is an active performer and music tutor based in London. Originally trained as a classical clarinettist, she later took up saxophone as she drew closer to jazz and improvised music, then trained in jazz saxophone at the Perugia Conservatory of Music in Italy. Here she also studied the fundamentals of piano accompaniment and took second study classical clarinet. She is now a versatile player involved in a range of projects in the jazz, RnB, hip hop, afrobeat, funk and fusion genres. Anna is available to teach from absolute beginner to pre-university level inclusive, from the age of seven upwards. In your first lesson she will aim to get a good understanding of your level, strengths and areas to improve in, what your learning style is and what your musical interests are. A variety of activities and materials in a range of musical styles will be provided with the space for you to choose which work best for you. She will also discuss with you your goals and your musical experience or current activity, thus being able to cover appropriate elements in lessons and ultimately enabling you to get the most possible out of each lesson and your personal practice time. For classical clarinet and saxophone students (up to Trinity Guildhall grade 8 inclusive), lessons will obviously be more centred towards the execution of written works, covering repertoire from the Baroque period to the works of contemporary composers. Exam repertoire can also be studied optionally, if the student wishes to participate in graded examinations (Trinity Guildhall). Jazz or contemporary saxophone students will focus on developing their ear and internalising chord-scale theory, studying elements of music theory where necessary and exploring improvisation, transcription and their own musical vocabulary. There is also the option of working towards Trinity Guildhall graded examinations. Theory-exclusive lessons are available, covering exam-board courses as well as jazz theory and general areas of interest. All-rounder students are also more than welcome - they will cover a mix of styles and skills according to their taste, though never neglecting technique and fundamentals of the instrument. Beginner and absolute beginners, not to worry! Anna will take you through your first steps on your instrument, getting you playing from day one, always ensuring that good technique is learned early on. Lessons follow your pace so it doesn’t matter how quick of a learner you are or how much time you’re able to put into home practice - once one skill is well-internalised you will be able to move onto the next, securing steady progress whilst putting into practice lessons already learnt.

*** Music Theory lessons with Dr Jonathan *** I am a composer and educator based in South-East London who has recently obtained a PhD in composition from the Guildhall School of Music & Drama, having previously studied at Cambridge and the Royal Academy of Music. My passion for music feeds directly into my passion for teaching, and I hope that I can inspire as many people as possible to deepen their love of music by learning to understand it from the inside out. I have been teaching music for over 10 years both in schools and as a private tutor, ranging from interactive workshops with primary students to university-level one-to-one composition. I have previously been the resident composition teacher at Eton College (2015-17) and City of London School for Girls (2017-20), as well as delivering workshops at schools around the country in a visiting capacity. I am as comfortable working with students taking their very first steps in theory and composition as I am with those who are more advanced, and can teach across a variety of styles and genres including classical, jazz, rock and musical theatre. As a tutor, I always seek a student-led approach, adapting content and delivery to individual tutees’ needs. Above all, whether in theory or composition, I always try to enthuse students by conveying my own love of music and encouraging theirs. No element of music or musical development can be considered in isolation, and so I seek to link up whatever a student is working on with their wider musicianship and listening – classical or otherwise – to put things into context. Another important part of my teaching practice is preparing tailor-made resources for students which are theirs to keep, ensuring that any material covered can be revised and consolidated. Time is split between teaching key concepts (including providing tailor-made resources) and looking through student work, always balancing the discussion between aspects of the work which are more or less successful. While most of my theory students take ABRSM theory grades, I also teach theory and musicianship more broadly without focusing on specific exams and boards.

Whether you want to sing for fun, be coached through the ABRSM graded singing exams, or brush up your understanding of music through theory lessons, don't hesitate to get in touch. Singing Ethos: My belief is that everyone can learn to sing when taught properly and holistically and can experience the joy of discovering the unique qualities of their individual voice. This is a joy which I share with my students and why I find teaching so rewarding. My experience is predominantly (but not exclusively) with children and I love to watch as their love for their voice grows. What you can expect: I believe it is important to teach with an emphasis on technique and vocal health, so from the first few lessons students learn about the body and the way the voice works. I address this through exercises and breathing techniques as well as songs appropriate to age and stage; (usually based around the appropriate ABRSM Grades). I strive to create a fun, nurturing environment where learning and confidence can be optimised. I currently study with Sophie Grimmer, a highly respected and accomplished vocal teacher based in London who has performed at venues across Europe and London such as ENO. Therefore everything I teach my own students is informed by the world class tuition I am lucky enough to receive, (but of course adjusted so that it is age appropriate). This ensures that the tuition I give is always current and reflects the ever evolving industry standards for vocal tuition. I look forward to hearing from you! (Please don't be put off if below availability doesn't work, as this can be negotiated).

Leon - Cambridge£41
Trusted teacher: I am a friendly, patient, and professional Piano, Composition, Production, Music Theory, and DJ teacher from London, based in Cambridge. I have 11 years of teaching experience, and have taught pupils from 5 years old to 65! I began composition lessons with Darren Bloom at Forest School, Snaresbrook, and was awarded a scholarship to the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, followed by a place at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam, where I completed an MMus in Composition in 2019. My previous tutors include Richard Ayres, Wim Henderickx, Richard Causton, Edwin Roxburgh, Ed Bennett, Joe Cutler, and Howard Skempton. I have also taken master classes from Rebecca Saunders, Mario Garuti, Anna Korsun, and Colin Matthews. I was the winner of the Orchestre Nouvelle Generation Composers Competition 2016/17, and the Birmingham Conservatoire Orchestral Composition Prize 2015. Distinguished ensembles and performers who have performed my works include the DoelenKwartet, HERMESensemble, Syzygy Quartet, Ossian Ensemble, Noszferatu, Decibel, David Le Page, Patrick Johnson, Sara Minelli, Rowland Sutherland, and Colin Alexander. My compositions have been featured at world-famous festivals including the String Quartet Biennale Amsterdam and TROMP Percussion Festival and at venues such as Kings Place and Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ, as well as various venues throughout Europe, North America, and South Africa. In addition to classical composition, I also write advert soundtracks on a regular basis for clients such as GHD, Lanvin, Japanese Vogue, Mariana Jungman (London Fashion Week), Cent Magazine, and Face Lace. I have completed a number of scores for award-winning short films 'Wanted' by Graeme Montgomery, and 'Genesis' by Beatrix Haxby. I am also a bassoonist, having studied with Adam Mackenzie (New London Chamber Ensemble) and John Orford (London Sinfonietta). I was a member of Essex Youth Orchestra for four years, and have written a new repertoire for the instrument including a number of Concert Studies and also a Bassoon Quartet. I am also an active DJ under the alias 'Delian Sound', playing eclectic sets from Garage to Jungle. I studied with international artists including Kasey Riot and Noah Priddle at the London Sound Academy and have performed in venues such as SET, Dalston alongside artists including Chiminyo and D’vo. Tutoring Experience: From 2009-2011 I taught Drumkit to students aged between 10-15 at a local Rock & Pop School. I've also been involved in a number of music courses for children between 2009-2014 as a Supervisor / Sound Technician. In 2016 I began giving private lessons and built up a group of over 20 pupils ranging from 5-year-olds to adults through positive word-of-mouth. Between April-July 2017, I was contacted by a local primary school to give small group lessons in Piano and Guitar. Alongside my studies in Amsterdam, I continued to teach a similarly wide age range of pupils. Since 2019 I have taught Composition & Musicianship at the Saffron Walden Centre for Young Musicians. I have an Enhanced DBS check, available upon request. Tutoring Approach: My philosophy in Music Tuition is to improve the student's technique through exercises and pieces which they enjoy. I also provide general music education as I believe in a holistic approach, and increasing their passion for music which will increase their motivation for practice and improvement.

Matt - Cambridge£35
Trusted teacher: "In the time he worked with my son, Matt was punctual, reliable and organised. He was very good at communicating with us about activities completed in the lessons and practice he had set. It was evident from this communication that Matt has a very conscientious attitude towards his students and gives thought to supporting their progress. In turn, he was mindful of how we could support these lessons as parents. Matt was always professional, friendly and patient. He took a positive approach at all times and my son was always happy to attend his lessons. In addition, Matt is generous in sharing his own musical interests to foster enthusiasm in his pupils. This gave a wider context to learning music which we appreciated." - Laura, parent. "Inspirational teacher, accommodating with the genres covered, will transcribe your favourite music so you can learn to play it. Very supportive, patient and understanding, easy to get along with and at the same challenging. Taken on a challenge with me as I am a novice to playing an instrument. Never too late to learn with Matt." - Bob, student. "My children say that Matt explains things really clearly. He is very encouraging and makes the lessons interesting and varied. He challenges but is also really supportive. We highly recommend him." - Kate, parent. "Matt has a perfect blend of solid knowledge of theory whilst being able to apply it to the bass and make music. He also has impeccable teaching skills to help students of any skill level reach their goals." - Andrew, student. “We just love Matt - he is so kind and patient. He has been really great at teaching my 13 year old son bass guitar. He is always punctual, organised and very personable. He is most encouraging and provides us with a wonderful service. I definitely recommend him!” - Jackie, parent. “I’ve been learning piano & music theory with Matt since the beginning of November. He is an intelligent, calm, knowledgeable, genuine and patient teacher who is thorough in his direction. In the short time I have been learning piano my wife has been astounded at how quickly I have picked things up. I would highly recommend him to any potential student wanting to learn the piano, bass guitar and/or music theory.” - Izzy, student. “Really enjoying learning new styles and skills and putting right all my bad habits from 40 years of playing bass without lessons.Its a very enjoyable experience, one I look forward to through the week.” - David, student “Matt’s music sessions have been highly educational and at the same time very fun for our child. We found Matt a very talented musician who has wonderful passion for playing and teaching. He invests time and energy for the lessons and tailors them to meet child’s needs and specific goals.” - Hamid & Naz, parents. "Matt combines an underlying rigour in his teaching both in skills and theory with a fun and supportive environment. This blend provides good motivation as well as an example with his own knowledge and experience." - John, parent. “I've been working with Matt as a bass teacher for a few months now and even seen him perform, I can say that he knows the subject very well and can relay the information about the subject in an effective manner. Matt has a vast knowledge of all music and will accommodate anyone's taste in music or bands and help to relate that to the subject as a whole.” - Alex, student.

Violin for everyone! Repertoire provided. ABRSM/Trinity possible (The Hague)
Mario
Mauro created the energetic vibe right the moment I stepped into the class. I studied violin with other teacher before and Mauro helped me out transit smoothly to the new teacher with his teaching method. I really like doing scales with Etude, adding much more musicality. He also observed closely when I played and helped me improve each small details. I really appreciated that. Last but not least, the studio is equipped with piano as well and I enjoyed practicing duo with Mauro either with two violins or violin-piano.

Piano, Singing, Theory, Composition and Organ lessons from the most experienced, highly qualified teacher (Kowloon)
Robin
It's been a real pleasure to learn with Robin! His classes are always exciting, simple to follow, informative, and most importantly, entertaining! He has aided me in further realising the beauty of the piano through the fascinating genre of jazz music. I look forward to improvising new melodies and tunes every day thanks to Robin's patient and skilled instruction. A fantastic piano teacher, 10/10!
Review by ANITA
Guitar lessons in South East London. Learn how to play guitar, write songs, pass grades, or learn music theory. (Peckham)
Lou
Highly recommended! It was really nice to receive a message from Lou regarding our search for guitar lessons! Due to corona and a closed school, my 13 year old had more time to play guitar and she wanted to learn more about composition/scales. How cool that for online lessons, distance is no obstacle (we live in Luxembourg). We highly recommend Lou's enthusiastic and professional lessons!
